A transfer applicant has been enrolled in a regular session at a college or university after high school, excluding summer sessions. UC San Diego enrolls transfer students at the junior level. 32% of our undergraduate class are transfer students: free thinkers and creative nonconformists from all over the globe who converge on our campus to shatter the limitations of "ordinary."
We're looking for your insatiable curiosity and drive to build a better world. Many of our transfer students come from community colleges across California. Others arrive from colleges and universities across the country and around the world, ready to join a student body that thrives on challenging assumptions and overturning the status quo.

Transfer Major Preparation
Students planning to transfer must complete the minimum major preparation coursework to be considered for admission into the major. Applicants for this list of departments will be screened for the number of preparatory coursework completed, the grades earned in that coursework and the cumulative GPA.
International applicants must meet the same transfer requirements for admission as any other transfer applicant in addition to the international requirements.
